, and today was no exception. let's take a look at the highlights. edwin is actually the only nats starting pitcher with any kind of playoff experience. today he lasted five innings giving up four runs early. three of them were off this blast by pete kozma in the top of the 2nd, but the big problem for the nats was at the plate. they couldn't do enough of anything leaving 11 runners on bases, morse 0-4, harper 0-5, not numbers to move on. the nats bullpen couldn't keep the cardinals in check either. they surrendered four runs as the nats dropped game three to the cardinals 8 -0. >> it's going to be tough to score if you don't hit, but i believe in this team and in knees guys. we've been here all year, over 1 -- these guys. we've been here all year, over 160 game season, still the best in baseball. >> we didn't score. they got a nice pitcher out there. he's pitched in some big games. we didn't get it done, but we got five games in the series and one big one to play tomorrow. >> i've had my back to worse walls than this, but i like my ballclub and i think we'll come out, play the game tomorro

cardinals not surprisingly after the game nats fans weren't the slightest bit shy about expressing their bitter disappointment. >> i think they looked like trash. with the best record, it didn't look like it at all, pitchingwise, i mean no hitting. it's just surprising. >> reporter: down 2-1. still have hope? >> oh, we're going to win. nationals come home. when they come home, they always lose the first game because they've been on the road so long. when they get back, they're going to win the second and third game. >> it was fun. they'll be good next year, but we'll season. >> reporter: you're saying the series is over already? >> i'm calling it. i'm calling it. >> reporter: why's that? >> cards are good. nats are good, but cards are better. >> a little disappointed, but i love these boys. i've been feign since 2005. no matter what happen -- a fan since 2005 no. matter what happens here on out they did the district proud. >> reporter: also heard a lot today after the game, a variation of that familiar baseball refrain there's always next year, there's always next game. tomorro

that in perspective think back to 24 hours ago when if you'd asked those very same nats fans, they were a little worried. the strength of this team which had been its pitching when become the weakness. the st. louis cardinals' bats were on fire. they'd gotten beaten so badly tuesday night could. they come back? they weren't quite sure. then came jayson werth last night, a guy who some would say is the weakness for this team, paid so much money for him, hadn't produced like some hoped. he became the strength and now all the attitudes have changed now. everybody thinks the nats will do it tonight. there's only one game between them and the national league championship series. sitting here beside me is dave owens who can talk about just what this team has to go through to get to the other side of this game tonight. >> reporter: the one word that keeps coming to my mind is pressure. that's the thing and an old coach once told me it's one thing to do your job in a normal situation. it's another thing to do your job when it's pressure packed. it's win or go home tonight. we've heard it before. the na
